Soul Cal 2 tournament rules?


#1

Anyone know the rules for SC2? I searched on the forums and found nothing.


#2

IIRC, No console only characters and that’s it.


#3

Normal VS mode
Best of 5 rounds
50 or 60 second time limit, whichever you prefer
100% health (default)
Random stage select

Link/Heihachi/Spawn are generally banned, but can be included if all players are familiar with a single version and wish to do so.

That’s pretty much it.


#4

Hmmm I thought Necrid was banned guess not, well thanks for the info.

This was the rule set when SC2 was at Evo.

I would have thought they would try to keep it as arcade-authentic as possible at Evo, which would mean no Seung Mina, Sophitia, Assassin, Berserker, or Lizardman. Plus, Soul Calibur II DID get an arcade release in the US, so I don’t see why they couldn’t rent some cabinets for such a huge event.


#7

why is Lizardman’s Reptile Rumble banned?

you could do all sorts of stupid things with that grab. Camera glitches, multiple throws, free launch. I think it was unbreakable as well, meaning you could get an infinite out of it. Just generally retarded.


#9

General SC2 tourney rules are the same as those evo rules.

Adding Sophie/Mina/Assassin/Berserker/Lizardman opened up more depth by adding more characters. None of them are overpowered by any means, and it made things a bit more interesting.


#10

I didn’t know the PS2 had those kind of slowdown issues with SCII

Is the PS2 version considered the best version out of the three?


#11

Performance-wise, its the worst, but its the fact that most people have a PS2, and the controller for PS2 is far more universal than an xbox or a GC. Buncha people use a PS1/PS2 pad to play the game, and a buncha people use joysticks. There’s more joysticks for the ps1/ps2 than any other system, and more people who are into fighters have a ps2 than any other system.


#12

xbox version was the best imo


#13

That’s up to whoever’s running the event and the participants. A lot of tournies never allowed him, not because he was overpowered, but because nobody really cared. He’s a very unappealing character.
